Bev is from the bold and brassy school of stand up, delivering a non-stop energetic set every time. As soon as she blasts her way on stage, you know you’re in for a treat. Bev is likeable, bawdy and real. Bev started making people laugh from the age of ten, at family gatherings. Invariably these gatherings would end up with her putting on a show. Bev’s ability to remember a joke (handed down from her Dad at the meatworks) and tell it well, saw her doing Stand Up Comedy in the school quadrangle long before she knew that it would be her calling.
Participating in numerous performance workshops from clowning to improvisation, she perfected her Stand Up routine touring it around Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane comedy circuits performing in top comedy spots such as The Espy, The Comedy Club, The Comic’s Lounge, The Comedy Store and the Sit Down Comedy Club. (She loved the Espy so much she married the Lighting Guy, who would give her extra special lighting during her sets.)
Her comic abilities came to the attention of the Producer’s of the worldwide sensation Puppetry of the Penis. They offered Bev the opportunity to travel with the show as their opening act. For a while Bev’s life became all about boobs after she landed a role in the much-aired Berlei Ad for the Uplifting Tour of Australia. A result of this was that she was asked to perform as a Bosom Buddy in the hit show “Busting Out!” making audiences across the globe laugh their tits off as she got her tits out.
Bev has appeared in many ad’s and has also voiced radio ads and characters most notably in the feature film “Little Johnny: The Movie” released in 2011. Bev has worked with Weird Al Yankovic, Wayne Brady, Gina Riley and Jane Turner as a guest cameo on Kath and Kim.
She was a panel member on Beauty and the Beast, featured comic on Stand Up Australia, a special guest on the hit show Pizza, beat the blokes on Joker Poker, performed three solo shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Sic Women earned her a Green Room Award Nomination), was selected to perform in the prestigious female only “Up Front” gala and this year makes her Melbourne Comedy Festival Road Show debut.
Bev plays Bettina Bitjakokov in Song Contest – a match made in heaven.
